One of the first things that a new witch asks is "Where do I find spells?"
 
There are some spellbooks out there and a few websites that post some spells (usually charging for them).  Some people feel perfectly comfortable using the spells of another, but it is not always advisable.
 
You see, it is your energy and your visualization that makes the spell work.  Part of gathering the energy and the ability to visualize the outcome you are working towards is gained through writing the spell and choosing the tools that you will use.
 
I have provided many correspondances here and have included the magickal purposes they are commonly used for.
 
To create your own spell all you have to do is focus on your intention and consult the correspondances for the tools you will use.  After you have gathered your materials you should compose your spell.  It sometimes helps if the words rhyme.
 
Many think that the phases of the moon should be used to determine the best time to do spellwork.  From the New Moon to the Full Moon the moon is waxing.  This is the time to get things to come to you.  From the Full Moon to the New Moon the moon is waning.  This is the time to get things to go away from you.  The times of the greatest power are the actual Full Moon and New Moon.
 
I will give you an example of how to write a spell.  Let's say that you are having financial problems and you need a little extra money.  You could do something as simple as burning a green candle, preferably on a Full Moon.  Or you might burn a green candle annointed with prosperity oil and sprinkled with wealth powder.  You might also put together a prosperity sachet to carry with you.  In addition you could take a prosperity bath while visualizing the water being turned into a pool of money.  You could write a simple chant to repeat as you watch the candle burn.  It might be as simple as:
 
Candle green, full of light
Hear my call this very night
Bring me money as I call
Wealth unto me now befall!
 
Remember to visualize money coming to you.  Try not to specify the source of the funds or a particular amount of money.  Just visualize money being with you.  Don't confine the source or the amount or you confine the degree of your success. 
 
Let's say that you are in real financial straights and the moon is waning.  Not really a good time to ask money to come to you, is it?
Try working the spell in reverse.  Instead of asking for money to come, ask for bills to go away.  Burn a black candle to banish your bills.  You could even place your bills under the candle holder as you repeat the chant that you wrote that might go something like:
 
Black candle, full of light,
Take away my bills tonight.
Move my bills so far away
Make them go before the day.
 
Can you see that getting rid of your bills is the same thing as getting money?  -- big grin : ) now you get it! --
 
Don't worry about whether or not you are doing a spell correctly.  If you created the spell, you are the one to say whether the working of it is correct or not.
